Naples Engagement Session | Megan & Jimmy | Naples Wedding Photographer

Meghan & Jimmy's engagement session was quintessential (west coast) Florida! We had clear skies for the land and sea session. The couple took a casual approach for half of the session- walking their favorite small town Florida streets. The other was beachy romance! We love Meghan's bold red dress. It had stunning movement in the breeze!  Enjoy!

South Seas Island Resort Elopement | Lindsay & Tomasz | Captiva Island Wedding Photography

Lindsay + Tomasz's sunrise wedding was what elopement dreams are made of! Seriously, if you're going to run into the sunrise (or sunset) hand and hand, South Seas Island Resort's beach is the place to do it!  With just their parents, and us,  to witness their union, these two beautiful souls said I do with the soft sound of crashing waves and promises of forever love! 

Lindsay's dress was understated and gorgeous. We love how perfectly it paired her super uniquet airplant bouquet!

The morning was laid back, casual and oh so romantic! After vows, a single table with mimosas and all the best breakfast fixins' was set-up. With sand in their toes, they toasted to the special occasion. Don't you just love the waffle cake?! Yum!

Style Me Pretty published this wedding too (yay)! Check it out here.

Sarasota Wedding Photographer | Carrie & Joe | The Field Club Wedding

Both busy professionals, The Field Club in Sarasota was the perfect getaway destination for Carrie + Joe's wedding day.  

These two are actually high school sweethearts. Let's collectively say AWE! Seriously, hearing how you met and how he proposed is our FAV! Speaking of,  Joe proposed while on a boat, while vacationing in Portofino, Italy.  Talk about romantic! All the swoons. 

Carrie + Joes' wedding day was a timeless affair with an intimate feeling. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day to capture their love story.

Asheville Wedding Inspiration | Film Wedding | North Carolina Wedding Photographer

If you are considering a destination wedding (and you adore mountain air and sprawling views), we're pretty sure Asheville should be on your list! We love shooting in North Carolina, and Asheville has a special place in our hearts. It's a wonderful location for a wedding and one we're always down to travel to. For this shoot, a private estate near Lake Lure provided the perfect backdrop. The entire vibe for the shoot was mountainside romance. It had a touch of boho, a little bit of modern, but at the core, still timelessly beautiful. Which y'all know is our JAM! 

The greenery bouquet was ridic (in a good way) and the place setting had a beautiful, clean/crisp feeling. The dark blue kozo paper used as place cards provided a beautiful contrast with the neutral tablescape.  And the charger plate had a really cool shape- which worked great with the softer element like the candles & fabric.

The portraits taken in the lake are some of our favorites. We love when a couple can kick-off their shoes and immerse themselves in nature.

Barnsley Plantation Wedding | Jackie + Ehren | Atlanta Wedding Photographer

Are you ready to enter swoon city?! Jackie + Ehren's Barnsley Plantation wedding in Adairsville, GA was absolutely breathtaking! Every single detail was perfection- from the historic location to the lush, garden style florals, we couldn't get enough of the wedding day! 

The couple's wedding date was chosen for sentimental reasons- and simultaneously broke and touched our hearts! Jackie told us "My dad got sick a few weeks after we got engaged and I went back to Pittsburgh to be with him. He would say things like, "Please don't forget to tell me when the wedding is. I really want to be there." Ehren suggested we get married in the chapel of the hospice that Thanksgiving and I said that was ridiculous because I truly had hope that my dad would pull through as he always did. Sadly, he passed away a few weeks later and I kicked myself a lot for not getting married in that hospice chapel. So when it came time to picking a wedding date, getting married on my dad's birthday felt like the perfect way to honor him. And it was. :) 

Ehren's mom lost her dad when she was young and his parents got married on her dad's birthday as well so it was a special way to connect everyone and was so meaningful to us. "

Another thoughtful touch was Jackie's "something borrowed", which was her beautiful pair of shoes from her sister (also her Maid of Honor).
